Change dates for my Moodle Activities [Faculty]


The Dates report lets an instructor review and change due dates, access dates, cut-off dates, etc., for multiple Activities or Resources at once. This feature is especially useful for instructors who are reusing a previous course.

This Guide Will Help You to:

  • Update dates for Moodle activities

  • Seek further assistance

Update dates for Moodle activities

  1. Access the course you want to update.

  2. In the Course Navigation, select Reports.


  1. In the Reports section, select Dates.

Warning: The number of activities you have on the course page will affect the load time of the dates report. We recommend filtering by activity type to help your page load quicker. If you find yourself stuck on the “all activities” page add the following to your URL: &activitytype=assign.

For example:

  1. In the Activity type drop-down menu, select your desired activity (assignments, quizzes, forums, etc).


  1. After the page has reloaded, click Expand all in the upper right.

  2. Go through the different weeks and update each activity’s respective open/close dates.

  3. Click Save changes.

  4. Repeat the process for other activity types.
